Self-developing species compliance pig breeding suggests refusal of such production group as basic sows, and receiving commercial piglets exclusively from single sows.

Today, manual way of receiving sperm from male pigs using a sow phantom is considered one of the most effective ways. Sperm is taken during mounting of the stud boar on a phantom or dummy sow.
Keywords: pig production, male pig, stud boar, sow, young boar pigs, phantom, sperm, ejaculate, prepuce, artificial vagina, erection, sexual reflexes, seminal fluid.
Effect of aqueous-alcohol emulsion of propolis and natural zeolites as well as their combination on growth, development and meat productivity of young pigs aged from two to eight months was determined.
Keywords: feed, pig production, piglets, biological additives, propolis, zeolite, productivity, resistance, growth, development, meat qualities, slaughter indicators, daily average gain, live weight, meat chemical composition, physiological condition, crude protein, solids, crude ash, crude fat, total moisture, total protein, albumins, globulins.
Experts of the All-Union Animal Breeding Research Institute developed a software package for assessment and selection of replacement young animals by own productivity using an index selection method at various intensity of selection.
Keywords: pig production, animal, selection, animal breeding, genetics, population, heritability, variability, Large White and Landrace breeds, correlation, selection trait, selection index, young boar pigs, replacement young animals, generation, breeding accounting, productivity, Shalun 9 and Italmas lines, live weight, feed, salted pork fat, genetic mathematical analysis, plural regression, phenotype, genotype.
Abstract: Comparative analysis of chemical composition of muscular and adipose tissue of Large White yelts depending on their ethologic features was carried out.
Keywords: pig production, selection, yelts, Large White breed, chemical composition, meat, salted pork fat, ethology, rib eye, carcass, semi-carcass, acantha, meat productivity.

Abstract: Profitability and competitiveness of pig production depends on many factors. The primary condition of animal productivity is complete balanced feeding.

Abstract: Prolificacy of sows it determined by age, number of farrowings, housing conditions, feeding, and veterinary well-being. However, these and other factors may not be so decisive if individuals are not genetically predisposed to prolificacy.
Keywords: prolificacy, sow, piglet, male pig, farrowing, feeding, diet, precocity, thoroughbred and mongrel animals, genes, breed, hybrid, ovum, gene fund, feeding efficiency, weight gain, feed conversion, Large White pig, Large Black pig, Ukrainian meat pig, Landrace pig, Pietrain pig, Yorkshire pig, suckling period, weaning, genotype.
Abstract: Sow fertilization rate depends on the quality of sperm, insemination time, estrus control, embryo survival rate, timely diagnosis of pregnancy, and management.
Keywords: sow, breeding boar, native sperm, seminal fluid, artificial insemination, rate of fertilization, embryo, estrus, stress factor, prolificacy, semen, prepuce, diverticulum, sow phantom, oviduct, ovum, ejaculate, zygote, luteogenesis, yellow body, piglet.
